No bones about it – forensic science is fascinating! High school students can find out just how interesting it can be at the University of Findlay’s Forensic Science Summer Camp, to be held Sunday, June 25 through Thursday, June 29.
The camp will show what’s really involved with crime scene investigating and give students a better understanding. Here’s a clue: it’s not exactly how television portrays it, but it’s just as compelling. Experiential learning will take place in a UF lab and at mock crime scenes on campus.
Students will be given the opportunity to use deductive reasoning and scientific skills to uncover and explore the mystery of a series of unsolved crimes using current forensic techniques. This one-of-a-kind experience allows participants to delve into the practical use of biology, chemistry, mathematics and physics to examine evidence left behind at the crime scene and attempt to identify the suspect.
The camp is open to high school sophomores, juniors and seniors. Students will stay on campus for the duration of the camp, which cost $425.
